Oil production within the US continues to surge, according to a government report released this past month. For the first time since 1970, production was slated to top 10 million barrels a day. What's to attribute for this increase? It's believed that the incline in production rates over the last decade has been driven primarily by production from tight rock formations including shale and other fine-grained rock using horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing to improve efficiency. Learn more about this report and its findings here.

While maps are essential in allowing us a glimpse of a piece (or pieces) of information at a particular location and/or time, they do not often provide us with the opportunity of viewing the whole story. This is where Story Maps come into play. Many have used this resource to attach a narrative to their spatial data, taking the map reader on a journey they may not be able to take with just a single map view. Have you used this medium? How have others used it? What can be done with it? Find out more about Esri Story Maps here.
